So if I add a spacer would I need to raise the back?

to fit 33's and be able to 4 wheel you would need ~4" lift and wheel spacers otherwise you have a lot of trimming to do. Course if you aint planning on off roading than its easy, a small spacer lift, but that wont get you off the rocks

Not actually. I'm lifted on billies and stock coils and I can tuck my 33s all the way with no trimming.

Thumbs up

Do 5100's on 2.5 stock coils and a 3 leaf progressive 1.5" Add a leaf kit in the rear. Get a good alignment afterward. I got this on 208/70/17's (33's) driving 35,000 miles a year on and off road. rides great and economical. Dont waste money on spacers.

255/85/ 16 (255/80/17) on stock wheels might work with no extra lift or trim on a baja. Wheel spacers will make them hit the fender at flex, so trim would be needed. 285s will likely require aftermarket wheels and trimming. I'm in a similar position and have been combing the site and asking questions about going this route. I'm going to 255s in the spring when I take off my winter wheels, so I don't have real world experience yet FWIW.

Not a big fan of spacers I am just worried about rubbing and wanting it done right. Just wanting to see what other people have done.
